The new BootProtect spurs from Sprenger protect the riding boot with rubber coating on the inside of the spur, invisible from the outside. The rubber also keeps the spurs from slipping on the foot, and are striking with their slim appearance. Since the outer surface of the spurs is made of stainless-steel, they are ideal for sensitive horses or during shedding season. Like all Ultra fit series spurs, the BootProtect spurs are 100% break-proof.
The Sprenger caring instructions for stirrups are similar to those for bits and spurs. You should regularly remove all kinds of dirt by cleaning them with water and dry them afterwards. When needed also use the Diamond Paste to bring the shine back to the metal.
A soft cloth and when necessary a bit of water are perfectly good for cleaning our anthrazite and bronze coloured stirrups and spurs.
The stirrup pads can easily be cleaned with a grooming brush after riding.
Sprenger’s jointed stirrups have a Special developed “System 4” joint which is coated with a protective rubber layer. The rubber coat stabilizes the moveable part of the stirrup and protects the joint from dirt, sand and humidity.
Please also regularly check the condition of the stirrups and the rubber coating. Especially after a fall of rider and/or horse or after hitting the wall or the jump-stand with the stirrup, you should check if the joint is still working properly. If you find any deformations or if the mobility of the joint is limited, for safety reasons please do not use the stirrup any further.
